As you all know, my hubby is home with us this week for Thanksgiving and if you didn't know, he made a major career change about a month and a half ago and took a job in Denver. I've been home holding the fort down by myself and he stays in Denver 3 weeks and is home 1 week out of the month.
So Monday, we are in the living room kind of watching a movie and kind of talking. Mollee is gossiping loudly on the phone, Jorden is going on about his new job, Mikey is on the couch strumming a guitar, Jon is kicking his new car (the one he bought for $250 on Friday and it's now broke down in the driveway), Ayla's 9 puppies are in the kitchen crying and walking all over the place. Mike looks at me and says "Let's go. Call Grand Casino and reserve a room, make it a suite!" I'm like....ummmmm...okay?? Ten minutes later, we were packed and in the car heading north. LOL
The suite was beautiful and had a 4 person jacuzzi, which of course we filled with bubbles. lol We had a blast were relaxed, peaceful and reconnected. I even managed to win $250 in the casino! All was romantic and wonderful til 12:30 a.m., that's when we got the call.
Mollee snuck out to hang out with people shes not allowed to be around and came home at 1:00 a.m. with them and she was drunk. She was down by the highway crying and carrying on because Jorden told us what she did. Then she lied to Mike and said she hadn't been drinking. Two hours on the phone later, Mike yelling, me crying, both of us had headaches, all the relaxation wiped out, we fell into bed at 3:00 a.m. That girl!!! I swear, will she ever get it together?!?
Then we drove home talking about what to do with her and worrying about it for an hour and a half. Got home and had to sit down with her and figure out a game plan. 10:30 last night, I yelled "oh shit!" We hadn't gone to the store and bought Thanksgiving dinner yet!!! LOL So off we all went, all 6 of us to the grocery store at 10:30 at night. Half way through shopping Mike says he's going to run over to Target.
"What? No wait!"
"I'll be right back, I promise. I bet I'm back before you even get to the checkout."
As I'm standing in line with a full cart waiting to check out, in the door walks Mike with a box. He walks up and hands it to me. In the box is the brand new very cool coffeemaker I've been wanting.
"What the heck??? What is this for?? You just randoming go to Target in the middle of our shopping and bring me a coffeemaker?"
"Yup. Happy Birthday, I'm sorry I forgot your birthday and I know you've been wanting this."
Well bust my buttons!!! I flung my arms around him right at the checkout, amongst the kids and hugged and kissed him. This was so sweeeeeeeet!!
So now my 25 lb frozen turkey is sitting in the sink and I'm hoping it thaws by tomorrow morning.
I was on puppy duty last night so I got a whopping 3 hours of sleep, coffee in hand from my new coffeemaker and Fox News on the TV and I'm ready to begin a new day. Oh well...at least we got about 8 hours of alone time, at this point in our lives, that's alot! lol
Happy Thanksgiving to all my blogger friends!! Have a safe and wonderful holiday and don't forget to wear sweatpants at the dinner table! :)
